Question re: Future of RT
I'm interested in thoughts on what happens to RT devices if a new CEO decides to kill off RT. I'm very interested in the Surface 2 for my wife who has no need for a desktop other than occasional use of word or excel and Lumia 2520 as a consumption device for myself, but I'm concerned about the OS longevity in light of OEMs going with bay trail on the low cost side. If they kill RT off, will existing ARM devices continue to be able to use apps developed for metro? Interested in opinions pro and con. The alternative is another ipad which she likes but finds too limiting as her only device. The surface pro is more than she needs, I have one and she finds it too heavy and powerful and it is really an ultrabook+ in my view.
Also, does RT do Miracast natively after 8.1? I know that my pro does running the 8.1 beta but not sure about RT.
